I visited Cosmopolite Hotel last October (10/11) again almost two years after I stayed there previously. The hotel has good location, is equipped with full kitchen, including microwave and fire plate, in-room washing machine and safe. Two bottles of water have been provided free of charge daily without a charge. Room is very spacious, has free internet and a convenience store and a laundry shop is just downstairs. The hotel is about 20 minute walk from Dongzhimen Airport Express station what allows you to get to and from airport for meager 25 RMB and in just 15 minutes.
The room has however obvious signs of neglect through out. There were extensive signs of water damage that were covered with patches of paint that did not match the wall exterior color. The poorly designed showers flood the bathroom floor, causing also visible water damage to the bathroom door and hallway wall, and remain untreated. The bathroom sink is placed on a sort of a wooden table that I am sure it would looks fancy had it not being unused. But usage left extensive water damage to the wood finish, and it is obvious that it is just not suitable for bathroom use. The room was supplied with just one set of towels even though I booked it for 2 people. The towel situation has been remedied but it took me couple of reminders at the reception. Safety box is not attached to anything what kind of defeats the purpose... However the safety box is a descent size and easily fits my laptop. I mentioned that only because during my recent trip to SE Asia I noted a few miniature safety boxes that could barely hold anything inside.
The nearby school has some sort of laud outdoor drills around 8 am during the week that may disturb some if you plan on sleeping past that hour.
So would I stay there again? Probably yes, but the price is not as competitive with newer and better maintained hotels right across the street and constantly opening up in Beijing. I would say that the hotel rooms are badly in need of renovation and possibly some redesign work should be considered to resolve flooding bathroom issues.
